The Abundant Alternative to Financial Planning

Our Mission

Our mission is to learn the whole truth about money and apply it daily, teach it to clients and guide our nation onto more solid economic ground. Our focus is on sustainable financial solutions that have stood the test of time. We employ common-sense principles and strategies that preceded the rise of 401ks and the financial planning industry. The Prosperity Economics Movement goes beyond any one financial advisor, product or strategy. It is a new philosophy that espouses tried-and-true principles such as saving safely, creating cash-flowing assets, and using permanent insurance when appropriate.

Who & How We Serve

We serve consumers seeking to build wealth, but who are wary of traditional methods espoused by corporate financial advisors. We provide education on the concept of Prosperity Economics available through our media archive (links to blog, podcasts, books) and consultations. We also provide guidance for connecting to a financial advisor trained in the Prosperity Economics methodology. Prosperity Economics represents a different way of thinking, an alternative to “typical” financial planning’s reliance on mutual funds and tax-deferred government programs. Unlike some “typical” financial strategies, it teaches investors NOT to delegate control of their assets to their broker, their employer, or the government.

Our Story

The Prosperity Economics Movement is 501c3 organization founded in 2014 to ensure the legacy of our alternative approach to financial planning. Our Founders, Kim D. H. Butler and Todd Langford, envisioned an organization that would transcend the typical financial planning concept of “better than nothing” approach that only gets people half way up the hill. Instead, the Prosperity Economics Advisor shows you how to reach the “mountaintops” of prosperity.

Our Philosophy

Prosperity Economics

VS

Financial Planning

Pursues wants and dreams

Meets needs and goals only

Based on unlimited ideas of “what is possible”

Based on limited ideas of what you can afford

Optimizes opportunities

Minimizes requirements

“How else can I build wealth?” mindset

“How much do I have to save?”

Strategy-oriented (what you do)

Product oriented (what you buy)

Based on the time-tested principles and financial philosophies used to build wealth

Focus is primarily on buying certain products

Focused on recovering opportunity cost

Focused on rate-of-return

Keep more money working for you

“How much is this earning me?”

You control your money

Institutions control your money

Maintain responsibility for and access to your assets and funds

Put your assets “under management” (and/or give control to the government)

Macro (big picture) based

Micro (vacuum) based

View your whole personal economy

Focus in on your portfolio

Cash flow is measurement

Net worth is measurement

The goal is more money to enjoy each month

A bigger portfolio is the goal

Abundant/Freedom oriented

Retirement oriented

Enjoy your work and your life - all life long

Your reward for work is not working

Spends and replaces principle

Lives only on interest

A flexible, sustainable way to live

At the mercy of interest rates, with fingers crossed you don't need to use this principle

Money moves

Money stays still

Your personal economy is alive and well: money flows in and out of accounts

Assets are accumulated into accounts where they sit, financially “stagnant”
